Kin Knives would like to dedicate this range to Simon Kinder, a dear friend of ours who sadly passed away. Simon Kinder was the Managing Director of Magimix UK and was truly loved by everyone in the food industry. His help and support over the years has contributed to make Kin Knives what it is today. This range of single layer 8A steel knives is the perfect starter range. Simon’s advice was “You need a more affordable range.” So here it is. We just wish he could be here to see it. This medium sized single-layered preparation knife is the perfect ‘all-rounder’. The Santoku is the Japanese multi-purpose knife and is suitable for vegetables, boneless meats, fish and herbs. It is also great on larger vegetables, for example butternut squash and celeriac due to its deep blade.
